Centre for Cognitive Science hosted the second edition of CogniTalks on November 16. Like last year, CogniTalks 2018 had an eclectic group of experts to engage in a series of talks about human cognition.

Understanding human cognition is increasingly becoming vital in modern science, technology, art and design. New technologies are beginning to incorporate principles of how we perceive the world, learn and remember information, make decisions and interact with the environment.

This innovative event’s aim was to bring together experts from different fields to interact and discuss how humans think and act. Designers, architects and philosophers discussed the finer points of human behaviour. Students and academics from NID, NIFT, IIM, DAIICT and other neighbouring institutes were also invited to this event.
